I has an existing asp.ent web application which was working fine . It uses Crystal report for VS 2010. I have converted this application to window azure and added a web role into it.
when i select web role as a startup project my application run using azure storage emulator . it runs successfully. no error. but it does not show data in Crystal report pages. there no error but blank screen.
But when i run selecting my webapplication project as a startup project - crystal report pages will show the data.
I have not migarated my application to window azure .. just testing it locallly on emulator.
why it is like that. I am useing rpt files.
I have used DSN ( ODBC drivers) to create my rpt files. where i am supplying userid sa and password of sa in web config.
Do i need to change web role to incorporate some settings or rpt files.
I have also created my trial account on window azure.
Try to follow this artcle to make your application work with Crystal reports in Windows Azure Platform. It seem that you have to create a start up task to run a crystal reports installation file on your new Azure web role instances. Have a try.
